Manitowoc Foodservice agrees that its (or its Affiliate’s) offer of employment will meet whatever requirements may exist for reinstating the Eligible Inactive Employee under applicable law or Manitowoc ParentCo’s policies and procedures in existence immediately prior to the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date.
(c)    If any U.S. Transferred Employee is hired by any Affiliate of Manitowoc Foodservice, then that Affiliate will be bound by (and Manitowoc Foodservice will cause that Affiliate to honor) all of the provisions of this Agreement that would have applied to Manitowoc Foodservice with respect to that U.S. Transferred Employee, for such period as Manitowoc Foodservice would have been bound by such provisions.
(d)    Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice acknowledge and agree that the Distribution and the transfer or employment of Employees as contemplated by this Section 2.1 shall not be deemed a severance of employment of any U.S. Transferred Employee for purposes of this Agreement or any Employee Benefit Plan of any member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group or any member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group.

9




allowances and benefits which are no less favorable than the severance allowance and benefits that would have been provided with respect to any U.S. Transferred Employee who would have been severed under The Manitowoc Company, Inc. Severance Pay Plan as in effect on the date hereof.

Each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan shall assume liability for all benefits accrued or earned (whether or not vested) by Manitowoc

10




Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees and their respective Plan Payees under the corresponding Split DB Plan as of the Plan Split Date.

The portion of liabilities relating to Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employees and Former Manitowoc ParentCo Business Employees and their respective Plan Payees will cease to be liabilities of the applicable Split DB Plan, and will be assumed by the corresponding Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan in accordance with this Section and Section 414(l) of the Code, Treasury Regulation Section 1.414(l)-1 and Section 208 of ERISA.
(b)    Manitowoc ParentCo has caused or will cause its actuary to determine the estimated value, as of the Plan Split Date, of the assets required to be held on behalf of each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan in accordance with the assumptions and methodologies set forth in Treasury Regulation Section 1.414(l)-1 and ERISA Section 4044 (the “Estimated Retirement Plan Transfer Amount” for each such plan). Within thirty (30) days after the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc ParentCo shall cause the trust for each Split DB Plan to transfer to the trust of each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan an amount in cash or in-kind equal to 95% of the Estimated Retirement Plan Transfer Amount for such plan.
(c)    Within three (3) months after the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc ParentCo will cause its actuary to provide Manitowoc Foodservice with a revised calculation of the value, as of the Plan Split Date, of the assets to be transferred to each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan determined in accordance with the assumptions and methodologies set forth in Treasury Regulation Section 1.414(l)-1 and ERISA Section 4044 and reflecting any demographic updates (the “Final Retirement Plan Transfer Amount” for each such Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan). Within one hundred twenty (120) days after the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc ParentCo will cause each Split DB Plan to transfer to the corresponding Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan an amount in cash or in kind equal to (i) the Final Retirement Plan Transfer Amount, minus (ii) any amounts previously transferred from such Split DB Plan (A) directly to the corresponding Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan or (B) to a third party on behalf of the corresponding Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan (such amount, the “True-Up Amount”). If the True-Up Amount is a negative number with respect to any Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan, Manitowoc Foodservice will cause each such Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan to transfer back to the corresponding Split DB Plan an amount, in cash or in kind, by which the amounts described in clause (ii) in the preceding sentence exceed the Final Retirement Plan Transfer Amount. The parties hereto acknowledge that the Split DB Plans’ transfer of the True-Up Amount (if any) to the corresponding Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plans will be in full settlement and satisfaction of the obligations of Manitowoc

11




ParentCo and the Split DB Plans to transfer assets to the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plans pursuant to this Section. Any amounts transferred between a Split DB Plan and a Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan pursuant to Section 3.1(b) or 3.1(c), or otherwise to effectuate this Article 3, will be adjusted for earnings in a manner to be determined by mutual agreement of Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice.
(d)    From and after the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice and the members of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group shall be solely and exclusively responsible for all obligations and liabilities with respect to, or in any way related to, the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plans, whether accrued before, on or after the Plan Split Date. For the avoidance of doubt, the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plans will have the sole and exclusive obligation to the extent required by law and the terms of the applicable Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plan to restore the unvested accrued benefits attributable to any Former Manitowoc ParentCo Business Employee who becomes employed by a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group and whose employment with Manitowoc ParentCo or any of its Affiliates terminated on or before the Plan Split Date at a time when such individual’s benefits under the Split DB Plan were not fully vested. Furthermore, the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plans will have the sole obligation to restore accrued benefits attributable to any lost participants who were formerly employed in the Transferred Business to the extent required by applicable law.

As of the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice (acting directly or through a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group) will cause the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DB Plans to recognize and maintain all existing elections, including beneficiary designations, payment form elections and rights of alternate payees under qualified domestic relations orders with respect to Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees and their respective Plan Payees under the corresponding Split DB Plan.
3.3    Delayed Transfer Employees. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, for purposes of this Article 3, neither the term “Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employees” nor the term “Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees” will include Delayed Transfer Employees.

substantially similar to one of the Employee Benefit Plans listed on Schedule 4.1(a) (such Employee Benefit Plans, the “Split DC Plans”) such that (for the avoidance of doubt) each Split DC Plan is substantially replicated by a corresponding Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plan. Manitowoc Foodservice or a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will be solely responsible for taking all necessary, reasonable, and appropriate actions (including the submission of the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plans to the Internal Revenue Service for a determination of their tax-qualified status) to establish, maintain and administer the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plans so that they are qualified under Section 401(a) of the Code and that the related trusts thereunder are exempt under Section 501(a) of the Code. Each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plan will assume liability for all benefits accrued or earned (whether or not vested) by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees under the corresponding Split DC Plan as of the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date to the extent the Applicable Transfer Date occurs on or before the first anniversary of the Distribution Date.
(b)    On or as soon as reasonably practicable following the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date (but not later than thirty (30) days thereafter), Manitowoc ParentCo or another member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group will cause each Split DC Plan to transfer to the applicable Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plan, and Manitowoc Foodservice or another member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will cause such Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plan to accept the transfer of, the accounts, liabilities and related assets in such Split DC Plan attributable to Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees and their respective Plan Payees. The transfer of assets will be in cash or in kind (as determined by the transferor) and include outstanding loan balances and amounts forfeited by Former Foodservice Business Employees that have not yet been reallocated or applied to the payment of contributions or expenses and be conducted in accordance with Code Section 414(l) and Treasury Regulation Section 1.414(l)-1 and Section 208 of ERISA.

13




Spinoff DC Plans will, to the extent required by Law and the terms of the applicable Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plans, have the sole and exclusive obligation to restore the unvested portion of any account attributable to any individual who becomes employed by a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group and whose employment with Manitowoc ParentCo or any of its Affiliates, or a member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group, terminated on or before the Distribution at a time when such individual’s benefits under the Split DC Plans were not fully vested. Furthermore, the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff DC Plans will have the sole obligation to restore accounts attributable to any lost participants who were formerly employed in the Transferred Business to the extent required by applicable law.

From and after the Distribution Date, Manitowoc Foodservice or a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will be solely responsible for taking all necessary, reasonable, and appropriate actions to maintain and administer the Assumed DC Plans so that they are qualified under Section 401(a) of the Code and that the related trusts thereunder are exempt under Section 501(a) of the Code.

ARTICLE 5
WELFARE PLANS
5.1    Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans.
(a)    Effective as of the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice or another member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will establish the Manitowoc Foodservice Corporation Welfare Benefit Plan for Retirees and the Manitowoc Foodservice Corporation Bargaining Unit Welfare Benefit Plan for Retirees (together, the “Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plans”). Each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plan will have terms and features (including benefit coverage options, employer contribution provisions and retiree medical coverage) that are substantially similar to one of the Manitowoc ParentCo Employee Benefit Plans listed on Schedule 5.1(a) (such Manitowoc ParentCo Benefit Plans, the “Split Retiree Welfare Plans”) such that (for the avoidance of doubt) each Split Retiree Welfare Plan is substantially replicated by a Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plan, except as otherwise provided on Schedule 5.1(a). As of the Plan Split Date, each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plan shall cover those Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees and their Plan Payees who immediately prior to the Plan Split Date were participating in, or entitled to present or future benefits under, the corresponding Split Retiree Welfare Plan. The Manitowoc Foodservice Group and the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plans are solely responsible for all claims incurred by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees and their Plan Payees under the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plans and Split Retiree Welfare Plans (“Manitowoc Foodservice Retiree Welfare Claims”) before, on and after the Plan Split Date, but only to the extent such claims are not payable under an insurance policy held by the Manitowoc ParentCo Group. To the extent any Manitowoc Foodservice Retiree Welfare Claims are payable under an insurance policy held by the Manitowoc ParentCo Group, Manitowoc ParentCo will take all commercially reasonable actions necessary to process such claim and obtain payment under the applicable insurance policy. Effective as of the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and their Plan Payees will cease to be covered by the Split Retiree Welfare Plans. The Manitowoc ParentCo Group and the Split Retiree Welfare Plans will remain solely responsible for all claims incurred by Manitowoc ParentCo Employees and Former Manitowoc ParentCo Employees and their Plan Payees, whether incurred before, on, or after the Plan Split Date.
(b)    Effective as of the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice or a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will establish certain other welfare benefit plans (such plans, the “Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans”) with terms and features (including benefit coverage options, employer contribution provisions and retiree medical

15




coverage) that are substantially similar to one of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employee Benefit Plans listed on Schedule 5.1(b) (such Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employee Benefit Plans, the “Split Welfare Plans”) such that (for the avoidance of doubt) each Split Welfare Plan is substantially replicated by a Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plan, except as otherwise provided on Schedule 5.1(b). From and after the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date, Manitowoc Foodservice will cause each Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plan to cover those Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and their Plan Payees who immediately prior to the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date were participating in, or entitled to present or future benefits under, the corresponding Split Welfare Plan, except as otherwise provided in the Transition Services Agreement. With respect to any severance benefits owed to any (i) Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employee or any Former Manitowoc ParentCo Business Employee as a result of a termination of employment occurring before, on or after the Plan Split Date or (ii) Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employee or Former Foodservice Business Employee as a result of a termination of employment occurring prior to the Plan Split Date (the “Retained Severance Benefits”), the Manitowoc ParentCo Group and the applicable Manitowoc ParentCo Group Welfare Plans (including the Split Welfare Plans) will be solely responsible for all such Retained Severance Benefits. The Manitowoc Foodservice Group and the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans will be solely responsible for all claims incurred by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees and their Plan Payees under the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans and Split Welfare Plans (except with respect to Retained Severance Benefits or as otherwise provided in the Transition Services Agreement) (“Manitowoc Foodservice Welfare Claims”) on and after the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date. Effective as of the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date, Manitowoc ParentCo will cause Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and their Plan Payees to cease to be covered by the Manitowoc ParentCo Group Welfare Plans (including the Split Welfare Plans), except as otherwise provided in the Transition Services Agreement. The Manitowoc ParentCo Group and the Manitowoc ParentCo Group Welfare Plans will remain solely responsible for all claims incurred by Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employees and Former Manitowoc ParentCo Business Employees and their Plan Payees, whether incurred before, on, or after the Plan Split Date.
(c)    For purposes of this Section 5.1, a claim will be deemed “incurred” on the date that the event that gives rise to the claim occurs (for purposes of life insurance, severance, sickness, accident and disability programs) or on the date that treatment or services are provided (for purposes of health care programs).
5.2    Continuation of Elections.
(a)    As of or prior to the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice will cause the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plans to recognize elections and designations (including, without limitation, all coverage and contribution elections and beneficiary designations, all continuation coverage and conversion elections, and all qualified medical child support orders and other orders issued by courts of competent jurisdiction) in effect with respect to Former Foodservice Business Employees prior to the

16




Plan Split Date under the corresponding Split Retiree Welfare Plan, to the extent such elections and designations and orders are applicable to such Split Retiree Welfare Plan, and will continue to apply and maintain in force comparable elections and designations and orders under the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plans for the remainder of the period or periods for which such elections or designations are by their terms effective.

5.3    Deductibles and Other Cost-Sharing Provisions.
(a)    As of the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice has caused the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plans to recognize all amounts applied to deductibles, co-payments and out-of-pocket maximums with respect to Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees under the corresponding Split Retiree Welfare Plan during the plan year in which the Plan Split Date occurs, and the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Retiree Welfare Plans have not imposed any limitations on coverage for preexisting conditions other than such limitations as were applicable under the corresponding Split Retiree Welfare Plan prior to the Plan Split Date.
(b)    As of the Plan Split Date, or Applicable Transfer Date, Manitowoc Foodservice will cause the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans to recognize all amounts applied to deductibles, co-payments and out-of-pocket maximums with respect to Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees under the corresponding Split Welfare Plan during the plan year in which the Distribution or Applicable Transfer Date occurs, and the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans will not impose any limitations on coverage for preexisting conditions other than such limitations as were applicable under the corresponding Split Welfare Plan prior to the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date.  
5.4    Flexible Spending Account Treatment. The Manitowoc ParentCo Group and the portion of a Split Welfare Plan that consists of medical and dependent care flexible spending accounts (the “Manitowoc ParentCo Flexible Account Plan”) shall be solely responsible for any liabilities for reimbursement of medical and dependent care claims (“Flexible Spending Claims”) that are (i) incurred under the Manitowoc ParentCo Flexible Account Plan prior to the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees or (ii) incurred under the

17




Manitowoc ParentCo Flexible Account Plan prior to, on or after the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date by Former Foodservice Business Employees. The Manitowoc Foodservice Group and the portion of a Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plan that consists of medical and dependent care flexible spending accounts (the “Manitowoc Foodservice Flexible Account Plan”) shall be solely responsible for any liabilities for Flexible Spending Claims incurred on or after the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees. The applicable Manitowoc Foodservice Flexible Account Plan will, as required under Section 5.2, give effect to the elections of Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees that were in effect under the corresponding Split Welfare Plan as of the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date.
5.5    Workers’ Compensation. The Manitowoc ParentCo Group will be solely responsible for all United States (including its territories) workers’ compensation claims of Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employees and Former Manitowoc ParentCo Business Employees, regardless of when the Workers’ Compensation Events to which such claims relate occur. The Manitowoc ParentCo Group will have sole authority for administering, making decisions with respect to, and paying all United States (including its territories) workers’ compensation claims of Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees with respect to Workers’ Compensation Events occurring before the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date or Applicable Transfer Date (“Manitowoc Foodservice Workers’ Compensation Claims”), subject to the prior consent of Manitowoc Foodservice, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The consent described in the immediately preceding sentence will be evidenced in writing with respect to any decision relating to (a) the settlement of a Manitowoc Foodservice Workers’ Compensation Claim, (b) the designation of a condition as reimbursable, or (c) the administration of ongoing litigation. Manitowoc Foodservice will, and will cause any other member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group (and each of their respective successors and assigns) to, jointly and severally indemnify, defend and hold harmless Manitowoc ParentCo and each member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group and each of their respective successors and assigns from and against any and all damages incurred by Manitowoc ParentCo arising out of or in connection with a Manitowoc Foodservice Workers’ Compensation Claim, whether such damages arise or accrue prior to, on or following the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, but only to the extent such damages are not payable under an insurance policy (other than self insurance) held by the Manitowoc ParentCo Group. To the extent any such damages are payable under an insurance policy held by the Manitowoc ParentCo Group, Manitowoc ParentCo will take all commercially reasonable actions necessary to obtain payment of such damages under the applicable insurance policy. The Manitowoc Foodservice Group will be solely responsible for all workers’ compensation claims of Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees with respect to Workers’ Compensation Events occurring on or after the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, Manitowoc Foodservice shall assume or indemnify Manitowoc ParentCo against a portion of the letter of credit collateral obligation to the State of Wisconsin incurred by Manitowoc ParentCo in connection with the Wisconsin self-insured workers' compensation program in which Manitowoc ParentCo participates. The portion of such obligation that Manitowoc Foodservice assumes or indemnifies Manitowoc ParentCo against shall be determined on the basis of actuarial projections prepared by Manitowoc ParentCo's actuarial firm, as consented to by Manitowoc Foodservice, provided that such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

18




5.6    COBRA. Effective as of the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date, Manitowoc Foodservice or a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will assume or will cause the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans to assume sole responsibility for compliance with COBRA after the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date for all Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees, Former Foodservice Business Employees and their “qualified beneficiaries” for whom a “qualifying event” occurs before, on or after the Plan Split Date or the Applicable Transfer Date. Manitowoc ParentCo, the Manitowoc ParentCo Group, or a Split Welfare Plan will remain solely responsible for compliance with COBRA before, on and after the Plan Split Date or Applicable Transfer Date for Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employees, Former Manitowoc ParentCo Business Employees and their “qualified beneficiaries.” The terms “qualified beneficiaries” and “qualifying event” will have the meanings given to them under Code Section 4980B and ERISA Sections 601-608. For the avoidance of doubt, Section 5.1(b) will govern whether the Manitowoc Foodservice Spinoff Welfare Plans or Split Welfare Plans are responsible for claims incurred by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees, Former Foodservice Business Employees, or their qualified beneficiaries, while receiving continuation coverage under COBRA.
ARTICLE 6

After the Distribution Date, the Manitowoc Foodservice SERP shall provide benefits to Manitowoc Foodservice SERP Beneficiaries who were participants in the Manitowoc ParentCo SERP as of immediately prior to the Distribution Date that are substantially similar in form, timing and amount to those to which such Manitowoc Foodservice SERP Beneficiary would have been entitled to under the Manitowoc ParentCo SERP had such person’s employment with Manitowoc ParentCo or its Affiliates continued without interruption during the period of such person’s employment with Manitowoc Foodservice or its Affiliates. As of the Distribution Date, the Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees shall no longer participate in the Manitowoc ParentCo SERP and shall instead be eligible to participate in the Manitowoc Foodservice SERP. On or prior to the Distribution Date, Manitowoc ParentCo shall pay to

Manitowoc ParentCo shall have sole responsibility for the administration of the Manitowoc ParentCo DCP and the payment of benefits thereunder to or on behalf of Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employees, and no member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group shall have any liability or responsibility therefor. Manitowoc Foodservice Group shall have sole responsibility for the administration of the Manitowoc Foodservice Deferred Compensation Plan and the payment of benefits thereunder to or on behalf of Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees, and no member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group shall have any liability or responsibility therefor.
(c)    Each share unit relating to Manitowoc ParentCo Common Stock credited to “Program A” of the Manitowoc ParentCo DCP and the Manitowoc Foodservice Deferred Compensation Plan (a “ParentCo Share Unit”) on the Distribution Date shall be converted into, upon the Distribution being made, an adjusted ParentCo Share Unit and an equal number of share units relating to Manitowoc Foodservice Common Stock (the “Foodservice Share Units”). The adjusted ParentCo Share Units and the Foodservice Share Units held in the Manitowoc ParentCo DCP and the Manitowoc Foodservice Deferred Compensation Plan shall continue to be subject to the same terms and conditions as apply to ParentCo Share Units immediately prior to the Effective Time.

20




Manitowoc Foodservice SERP and the Manitowoc ParentCo DCP in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time. In connection with the assumption of the liabilities under the Manitowoc Foodservice SERP and the Manitowoc ParentCo DCP in respect of Manitowoc Foodservice SERP Beneficiaries and Manitowoc Foodservice Deferred Compensation Beneficiaries, Manitowoc ParentCo shall (or shall cause a Manitowoc ParentCo Group entity to), as soon as reasonably practicable after the Effective Time, transfer assets from the Manitowoc ParentCo rabbi trust relating to the accrued benefit of such Manitowoc Foodservice SERP Beneficiaries under the Manitowoc ParentCo SERP and the Manitowoc ParentCo DCP accounts of such Manitowoc Foodservice Deferred Compensation Beneficiaries in an amount equal to the funded percentage of such liabilities (as determined by Manitowoc ParentCo’s actuary) as of the Effective Time to the rabbi trust established by Manitowoc Foodservice with respect to the Manitowoc Foodservice SERP and the Manitowoc Foodservice Deferred Compensation Plan as of the Effective Time.
ARTICLE 7
OTHER TRANSFERRED EMPLOYEE MATTERS
7.1    Certain Foreign National Employees. The parties recognize that certain of the U.S. Transferred Employees and possibly Other U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employees are in nonimmigrant visa status or have applications for lawful permanent residence pending with the relevant governmental authorities (the “Affected Foreign National Employees”). The parties further recognize that new or amended petitions with respect to such Affected Foreign National Employees may be required in certain of these cases, unless Manitowoc Foodservice is deemed the “successor-in-interest” to Manitowoc ParentCo (as such term is used in pronouncements by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (“USCIS”)) with respect to such Affected Foreign National Employees. Accordingly, Manitowoc Foodservice hereby expressly agrees to assume, and Manitowoc ParentCo hereby assigns, in each case effective as of the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, all of the immigration related liabilities of the Affected Foreign National Employees (including, without limitation, any obligations, liabilities and undertakings arising from or under attestations made in each certified and still effective Labor Condition Application filed by Manitowoc ParentCo with respect to any such Affected Foreign National Employees). The parties each agree to take such actions as may reasonably be requested at and following the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date to document to the USCIS or such other governmental agency, as the case may be, the “successor-in-interest” relationship with respect to any Affected Foreign National Employees.
7.2    Workers’ Compensation. The U.S. Transferred Employees and Other U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employees will be covered under Manitowoc ParentCo’s workers’ compensation insurance until 11:59 p.m. on the day preceding the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date. On and after the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, the U.S. Transferred Employees and Other U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employees will be covered under the workers’ compensation insurance of Manitowoc Foodservice.
7.3    Delayed Transfer Employees. Upon mutual agreement of Manitowoc Foodservice and Manitowoc ParentCo, any employee whose employment transfers within 6 months after the Distribution Date from the Manitowoc ParentCo Group to the Manitowoc Foodservice Group or

21




from the Manitowoc Foodservice Group to the Manitowoc ParentCo Group because such employee was inadvertently and erroneously treated as employed by the wrong employer on the Distribution Date and who was continuously employed by a member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group or the Manitowoc ParentCo Group (as applicable) from the Distribution Date through the date such employee commences employment with a member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group or Manitowoc Foodservice Group (as applicable) will be a “Delayed Transfer Employee”; provided that no employee of either Group who is covered by a collective bargaining agreement at the time such employee transfers to the other Group will be a Delayed Transfer Employee. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no employee will be considered a Delayed Transfer Employee unless the mutual agreement with respect to, and Applicable Transfer Date of, any Delayed Transfer Employee occurs on or before the date that is 6 months after the Distribution Date.
ARTICLE 8
NON-U.S. TRANSFERRED EMPLOYEE MATTERS
8.1    Non-U.S. Transferred Employees.
(a)    Subject to Section 7.3 herein, effective as of the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, Manitowoc Foodservice agrees to employ, or cause one of its applicable Affiliates to employ, the Non-U.S. Employees who accept offers of employment from the applicable Affiliate of Manitowoc Foodservice or who otherwise become employees of the applicable Affiliate of Manitowoc Foodservice by operation of law (other than any Eligible Inactive Employee). Where a transfer of employment is necessary, such transfer will be carried out in compliance with applicable transfer laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the European Union Acquired Rights Directive (as amended and as implemented from country to country from time to time) or any such similar transfer law or regulation in other countries that provides for the transfer of employment by operation of law (such transfer laws and regulations collectively, the “Transfer Laws”). Where a transfer of employment is necessary and the Transfer Laws are not applicable, Manitowoc Foodservice agrees that the employment of each Non-U.S. Employee will be transferred to Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates by substitution of employer, three-party contract, assignment, subjective novation, or as may otherwise reasonably be required or permitted to obtain the consent of the Non-U.S. Employee to the transfer and to the extent possible without triggering the obligation to pay severance or other termination liabilities. The parties agree to cooperate fully and timely in the transition activities and also to comply (and cause their applicable Affiliates to comply) with the Transfer Laws.
(b)    In the event that, within thirty (30) days after the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, a Non-U.S. Employee is found not to have transferred to Manitowoc Foodservice or its applicable Affiliate (when such transfer was contemplated by the Separation Agreement or this Agreement), then Manitowoc Foodservice, in consultation with Manitowoc ParentCo, will as soon as practicable, but in any event within ten (10) days that are business days in the relevant jurisdiction of being so requested by Manitowoc ParentCo, make or cause an Affiliate to make to each such Non-U.S. Employee an offer in writing meeting the requirements of Section 8.1(a) to employ him or her effective

22




immediately. As of acceptance of the offer made pursuant to this Section 8.1(b), the employment of the Non-U.S. Employee will terminate with Manitowoc ParentCo or its applicable Affiliate.
(c)    If within thirty (30) days after the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, any employee of Manitowoc ParentCo or any Manitowoc ParentCo Affiliate (other than a Non-U.S. Employee) is found to have transferred to Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates (when such transfer was not contemplated by the Separation Agreement or this Agreement), (i) Manitowoc ParentCo in consultation with Manitowoc Foodservice will as soon as practicable, but in any event within ten (10) days that are business days in the relevant jurisdiction of being so requested by Manitowoc Foodservice, make or cause one of its Affiliates to make to each such person an offer in writing to employ him or her effective immediately and (ii) Manitowoc ParentCo’s offer will be for terms and conditions of employment that are substantially comparable to the corresponding provisions of the employee’s contract of employment as existing immediately prior to the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date. As of acceptance of the offer made pursuant to this Section 8.1(c), the employment of the employee will terminate with Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates, as applicable.
(d)    If any Eligible Inactive Employee on a non-U.S. payroll becomes eligible to return to active work status after the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date and at a time when he or she would be entitled to reemployment under either applicable law or Manitowoc ParentCo’s policies and procedures in existence immediately prior to the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates will immediately take such steps as may be necessary to employ the Eligible Inactive Employee. Such employment will satisfy the requirements of applicable law and Manitowoc ParentCo’s policies and procedures in existence immediately prior to the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date. In addition, the termination of the Eligible Inactive Employee from Manitowoc ParentCo or its Affiliate and the employment of such Eligible Inactive Employee by Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates will, if possible, be conducted in such a manner as to avoid triggering the obligation to pay the Eligible Inactive Employee severance or other termination liabilities. Any Eligible Inactive Employee who becomes employed by Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates pursuant to this Section 8.1(d) will be treated as a Non-U.S. Transferred Employee as of his or her date of hire with Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates (which date of hire will be substituted for the “Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date” as to that Non-U.S. Transferred Employee for all purposes of this Agreement).
8.2    Non-U.S. Employee Benefits.
(a)    Manitowoc Foodservice will, or will cause its Affiliates to, establish or maintain the Manitowoc Foodservice Non-U.S. Plans and such other employee benefit plans outside of the United States as may be required by applicable law and Section 8.1(a).
(b)    As of 11:59 p.m. on the day preceding the Plan Split Date (or such later date as provided in Schedule 8.2 or in subsequent written agreements between the parties for the

23




adoption of the Manitowoc Foodservice Non-U.S. Plan of the same type), Manitowoc ParentCo and/or its Affiliates will cease all responsibility or liability with respect to coverage for any Non-U.S. Transferred Employee and any Other Non-U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employee under any Employee Benefit Plans maintained by Manitowoc ParentCo or any of its Affiliates. To the extent such coverages are permitted to cease under applicable law and are not continued by Manitowoc ParentCo or its Affiliates in accordance with the immediately following sentence, the coverages will so cease immediately prior to the Plan Split Date. To the extent (i) such coverages are required to continue on or beyond said applicable date under applicable law or (ii) Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice agree in writing that any such coverages will continue after said applicable date for other purposes not inconsistent with applicable law, Manitowoc ParentCo and/or its Affiliates will continue to provide coverage for any Non-U.S. Transferred Employee and any Other Non-U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employee under any benefit plans, programs or policies maintained by Manitowoc ParentCo or any of its Affiliates on and after the aforesaid date to the extent so required or agreed, and Manitowoc Foodservice and its Affiliates will indemnify Manitowoc ParentCo and its Affiliates and reimburse them for any and all expenses (as defined in Section 8.2(a) above) incurred under such plans in respect of such continuation of coverage on and after the aforesaid date. Reimbursement under this Section 8.2(b) will be made within thirty (30) days after Manitowoc Foodservice or its applicable Affiliate receives from Manitowoc ParentCo or its applicable Affiliate an itemized statement setting forth the types and amounts of such expenses. Schedule 8.2 sets forth the Manitowoc ParentCo Non-U.S. Plans, if any, in which Non-U.S. Transferred Employees and any Other Non-U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employees will continue to participate on and after the Plan Split Date or such other applicable date, as well as the anticipated date on which their participation in such plans will cease.
(c)    During the period from the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date through 11:59 p.m. on the day preceding the Plan Split Date, Manitowoc Foodservice will assume and fulfill, and will cause its Affiliates to assume and fulfill, in a timely manner, all of the accrued obligations and liabilities relating to the vacation, annual leave, and holiday policies (collectively, “Paid Leave Days”) of Manitowoc ParentCo and its Affiliates immediately prior to the Plan Split Date with regard to Non-U.S. Transferred Employees and any Other Non-U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employees, including allowing Non-U.S. Transferred Employees and Other Non-U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employees to use and be paid for their accrued but unused Paid Leave Days. On and after the Plan Split Date and subject to Section 8.3 below and the requirements of applicable law, Non-U.S. Transferred Employees and Other Non-U.S. Manitowoc Foodservice Employees will be entitled to accrue and use Paid Leave Days only in accordance with the policies and procedures of Manitowoc Foodservice or its Affiliates applicable to similarly situated employees.
8.3    Service Credit. Without limiting anything in Section 8.1 above and consistent therewith, Manitowoc Foodservice and its Affiliates will provide each Non-U.S. Transferred Employee with full credit for service recognized by Manitowoc ParentCo and its Affiliates for all purposes (but not for any defined benefit pension plan or retiree medical plan purpose unless either a plan-to-plan transfer of assets and liabilities has occurred or applicable law requires the recognition

24




of such service); provided that in no event will Manitowoc Foodservice or any of its Affiliates be required to provide any service credit to any Non-U.S. Transferred Employee to the extent Manitowoc Foodservice or its applicable Affiliate determines in its discretion that the provision of such credit would result in any duplication of benefits or unusual or unintended increase in benefits. To the extent that a Non-U.S. Transferred Employee is paid severance as a result of his transfer of employment to Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates, and to the extent permitted by applicable law, neither Manitowoc Foodservice nor its applicable Affiliate will be required to provide that Non-U.S. Transferred Employee with full credit for service recognized by Manitowoc ParentCo or Manitowoc ParentCo’s Affiliate, for purposes of any future severance or severance-like payments.
8.4    Immigration and Visa Matters. Where legally permissible and unless the parties agree otherwise, Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates will assume, in each case effective as of the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, any work permits, visas or other immigration documents relating to any Non-U.S. Transferred Employee. The employing entity of the Non-U.S. Transferred Employee will be solely responsible for the costs associated with the transfer of these documents, including, if necessary, the costs of third-party attorneys or consultants. Where permitted by law and/or applicable regulation, Manitowoc ParentCo will assign to Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates, and will cause its applicable Affiliate to assign to Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates, in each case effective as of the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date, such work permits, visas or other immigration documents and all immigration-related liabilities.
ARTICLE 9
EQUITY AWARDS AND INCENTIVE COMPENSATION
9.1    Outstanding ParentCo Equity Compensation Awards.
(a)    Each Manitowoc ParentCo Equity Compensation Award that is outstanding as of the Distribution will be adjusted as described below, so that each holder of a Manitowoc ParentCo Equity Compensation Award will hold adjusted equity awards comprised of a Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Award and a Cranes Equity Compensation Award unless otherwise provided in this Section 9.1(a); provided that, effective immediately prior to the Distribution, the Manitowoc ParentCo Compensation Committee may provide for different adjustments with respect to some or all of a holder’s Manitowoc ParentCo Equity Compensation Awards. For greater certainty, any adjustments made by the Manitowoc ParentCo Compensation Committee will be deemed incorporated by reference herein as if fully set forth below and will be binding on the parties hereto and their respective subsidiaries.
(i)    Each Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Option generally will be adjusted in the manner described below, effective as of the Distribution Date and immediately prior to the Distribution, so that immediately following the Distribution each Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Option holder will hold Cranes Stock Options and Manitowoc Foodservice Stock Options in lieu of the Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Options previously held. The following procedure will generally be applied to each Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Option with the

25




same grant date and exercise price held by each Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Option holder as of the Distribution Date:
(1)    The Cranes Stock Option will have an exercise price equal to the applicable Cranes Price. The number of Cranes Stock Options will equal the number of Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Options to which they relate. Such Cranes Stock Options will be subject to the same vesting requirements and dates and other terms and conditions as the Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Options to which they relate.
(2)    The Manitowoc Foodservice Stock Option will have an exercise price equal to the applicable Manitowoc Foodservice Price. The number of Manitowoc Foodservice Stock Options will equal the number of Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Options. Such Manitowoc Foodservice Stock Options will be subject to the same vesting requirements and dates and other terms and conditions as the Manitowoc ParentCo Stock Options to which they relate.
(ii)    With respect to Manitowoc ParentCo Restricted Shares, Manitowoc ParentCo Time-Based RSUs and Manitowoc ParentCo Performance Shares:
(1)    Each holder of Manitowoc ParentCo Restricted Shares will generally receive from Manitowoc Foodservice, as of the time of the Distribution Date and immediately prior to the Distribution, Manitowoc Foodservice Restricted Shares determined in the same manner as for other shareholders of Manitowoc ParentCo Common Stock. Such Manitowoc Foodservice Restricted Shares will be subject to the same vesting requirements and dates and other terms and conditions as the Manitowoc ParentCo Restricted Shares to which they relate (including the right to receive dividends or other distributions). Each Manitowoc ParentCo Restricted Share will continue to be one Cranes Restricted Share which will be subject to the same vesting requirements and dates and other terms and conditions as the Manitowoc ParentCo Restricted Shares to which it relates.
(2)    Each holder of Manitowoc ParentCo Time-Based RSUs will generally receive from Manitowoc Foodservice, as of the time of the Distribution Date and immediately prior to the Distribution, Manitowoc Foodservice Time-Based RSUs, determined in the same manner as for shareholders of Manitowoc ParentCo Common Stock. All Manitowoc Foodservice Time-Based RSUs will be subject to the same vesting requirements and dates and other terms and conditions as the Manitowoc ParentCo Time-Based RSUs to which they relate. Each Manitowoc ParentCo Time-Based RSU will continue to be a Cranes Time-Based RSU which will be subject to the same vesting requirements and dates and other

26




terms and conditions as the Manitowoc ParentCo Time-Based RSU to which it relates.
(3)    All Manitowoc ParentCo Performance Share awards for which the performance period has ended on or prior to the Distribution Date will be earned or forfeited based on the achievement of the applicable performance objectives as of the end of such performance period and will have been settled (or will be deemed to have been settled for purposes of determining the amount and type of equity received by the award holders in connection with the Distribution) in unrestricted shares of Manitowoc ParentCo Common Stock prior to the Distribution Date. The determination of whether any portion of the Manitowoc ParentCo Performance Shares has been earned based on the achievement of the applicable performance objectives will be made by the Manitowoc ParentCo Compensation Committee in accordance with the applicable Manitowoc ParentCo LTIP.
(4)    All Manitowoc ParentCo Performance Share awards for which the performance period has not ended on or prior to the Distribution Date will be earned at the target performance level and will be converted immediately prior to the Distribution into a number of Manitowoc ParentCo Time-Based RSUs equal to the target number of Manitowoc ParentCo Performance Shares subject to the award, without pro ration for the partial performance period. Such Manitowoc ParentCo Time-Based RSUs shall be adjusted in accordance with Section 9.1(a)(ii)(2), and shall remain subject to a requirement of continued service until the end of the original performance period, subject to earlier vesting upon death, disability, an involuntary termination without cause or a voluntary termination with good reason, in each case to the extent provided in the applicable award agreement.
(b)    In the event a change in control (as defined in the applicable equity incentive plan or award agreement) occurs with respect to Manitowoc ParentCo, then (i) any accelerated vesting and/or exercisability applicable to Cranes Equity Compensation Awards held by Cranes Employees and Former Cranes Business Employees shall apply to the Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards then held by such individuals, subject to any “double trigger” or similar requirement in the applicable equity incentive plan or award agreement, and (ii) any accelerated vesting and/or exercisability applicable to Cranes Equity Compensation Awards then held by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees shall apply, subject to any “double trigger” or similar requirement in the applicable equity incentive plan or award agreement. In the event a change in control (as defined in the applicable equity incentive plan or award agreement) occurs with respect to Manitowoc Foodservice, then (x) any accelerated vesting and/or exercisability applicable to Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards held by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees

27




shall apply to the Cranes Equity Compensation Awards then held by such individuals, subject to any “double trigger” or similar requirement in the applicable equity incentive plan or award agreement, and (y) any accelerated vesting and/or exercisability applicable to Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards then held by Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employees and Former Manitowoc ParentCo Business Employees shall apply, subject to any “double trigger” or similar requirement in the applicable equity incentive plan or award agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 9.1(b) will not apply to the extent that it would cause adverse tax consequences under Code Section 409A.
(c)    Prior to the Distribution Date, Manitowoc Foodservice will establish an equity compensation plan (subject to approval by the Manitowoc Foodservice Board of Directors or the Compensation Committee thereof), so that upon the Distribution, Manitowoc Foodservice will have in effect an equity compensation plan that allows grants of equity compensation awards subject to substantially the same terms as those that apply to the corresponding Manitowoc ParentCo Equity Compensation Awards. From and after the Distribution Date, each Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Award will be subject to the terms of the Manitowoc Foodservice equity compensation plan, the award agreement governing such Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Award and any Employment Agreement to which the applicable holder is a party. From and after the Distribution Date, Manitowoc Foodservice will retain, pay, perform, fulfill and discharge all liabilities arising out of or relating to the Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards. Manitowoc ParentCo will retain, pay, perform, fulfill and discharge all liabilities arising out of or relating to the Cranes Equity Compensation Awards.
(d)    In all events, the adjustments provided for in this Section 9.1 will be made in a manner that, as determined by Manitowoc ParentCo, avoids adverse tax consequences to holders under Code Section 409A.
9.2    Conformity with Non-U.S. Laws. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, (a) to the extent any of the provisions in this Article 9 (or any equity award described herein) do not conform with applicable non-U.S. laws (including provisions for the collection of withholding taxes), such provisions shall be modified to the extent necessary to conform with such non-U.S. laws in such manner as is equitable and to preserve the intent hereof, as determined by the parties in good faith, and (b) the provisions of this Article 9 may be modified to the extent necessary to avoid undue cost or administrative burden arising out of the application of this Article 9 to awards subject to non-U.S. laws.
9.3    Tax Withholding and Reporting.
(a)    Except as otherwise required by applicable non-U.S. law, the appropriate member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group will be responsible for all income and payroll taxes, withholding and reporting with respect to Cranes Equity Compensation Awards and Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards held by Manitowoc ParentCo Employees and Former Cranes Business Employees. Except as otherwise required by applicable non-U.S. law, the appropriate member of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will be responsible for all income and payroll taxes, withholding and reporting with respect to

28




Cranes Equity Compensation Awards and Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards held by Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employees and Former Foodservice Business Employees. Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice hereby designate the other party as an agent for withholding pursuant to IRS Revenue Procedure 70-6 and to accept such designation to effectuate the intent of this Section 9.3(a). Manitowoc ParentCo or Manitowoc Foodservice, as applicable, shall facilitate performance by the other party to this Agreement (each a “Party”) of its obligations hereunder by promptly remitting amounts or shares withheld in conjunction with a transfer of shares or cash, either (as mutually agreed by the Parties) directly to the applicable taxing authority or to the other Party for remittance to such taxing authority. The Parties will cooperate and communicate with each other and with third-party providers to effectuate withholding and remittance of taxes, as well as required tax reporting, in a timely, efficient and appropriate manner. Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice shall, to the extent practicable, (i) treat Manitowoc Foodservice as a “successor employer” and Manitowoc ParentCo as a “predecessor,” within the meaning of Sections 3121(a)(1) and 3306(b)(1) of the Code, with respect to Transferred Employees for purposes of taxes imposed under the United States Federal Unemployment Tax Act or the United States Federal Insurance Contributions Act, and (ii) cooperate with each other to avoid, to the extent possible, the filing of more than one IRS Form W-2 with respect to each Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employee for the year in which the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date for such Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employee occurs. The obligations to cooperate and support the other in respect of such tax withholding and remittance shall not continue beyond the termination or expiration of such or similar transition services under the Transition Services Agreement.
(b)    If Manitowoc ParentCo or Manitowoc Foodservice determines in its reasonable judgment that any action required under this Article 9 will not achieve the intended tax, accounting and legal results, including, without limitation, the intended results under Code Section 409A or FASB ASC Topic 718 – Stock Compensation, then at the request of Manitowoc ParentCo or Manitowoc Foodservice, as applicable, Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice will mutually cooperate in taking such actions as are necessary or appropriate to achieve such results, or most nearly achieve such results if the originally-intended results are not fully attainable.
9.4    Employment Treatment.
(a)    Continuous employment with the Manitowoc Foodservice Group and the Cranes Group following the Distribution Date will be deemed to be continuing service for purposes of vesting and exercisability for the Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards and the Cranes Equity Compensation Awards. However, in the event that a Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employee terminates employment after the Distribution Date and becomes employed by the Cranes Group, for purposes of Article 9, the Manitowoc Foodservice Group Employee will be deemed terminated and the terms and conditions of the applicable performance incentive plan under which grants were made will apply. Similarly, in the event that a Cranes Employee terminates employment after the Distribution Date and becomes employed by the Manitowoc Foodservice Group, for purposes of Article

29




9, the Cranes Employee will be deemed terminated and the terms and conditions of the performance incentive plan under which grants were made will apply. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for purposes of this Article 9 only, if an individual is a Delayed Transfer Employee, such individual will not be considered to have terminated on his or her Applicable Transfer Date. In addition, a non-employee member of the board of directors of Manitowoc ParentCo or Manitowoc Foodservice will be treated in a similar manner to that described in this Section 9.4(a).
(b)     If, after the Distribution Date, Manitowoc ParentCo or Manitowoc Foodservice identifies an administrative error in: the individuals identified as holding Cranes Equity Compensation Awards and Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards; the amount of such awards so held; the vesting level of such awards; or any other error; then Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice will mutually cooperate in taking such actions as are necessary or appropriate to place, as nearly as reasonably practicable, the individual and Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice in the position in which they would have been had the error not occurred.
9.5    Payment of Option Exercise Prices. Upon the exercise of a Cranes Stock Option or a Manitowoc Foodservice Stock Option, the exercise price of such stock option will be remitted in cash by the option administrator to the issuer of the option (the appropriate member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group or the Manitowoc Foodservice Group, as applicable) and the applicable withholding taxes will be remitted in cash by the option administrator to the entity (the appropriate department at the appropriate entity within the Manitowoc ParentCo Group or the Manitowoc Foodservice Group, as applicable) responsible for payroll taxes, withholding and reporting with respect to the option pursuant to Section 9.3. Upon vesting or payment, as applicable, of restricted shares, restricted stock units, performance shares or deferred shares, the applicable withholding will be remitted in cash by the administrator to the entity (the appropriate member of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group or the Manitowoc Foodservice Group, as applicable) responsible for payroll taxes, withholding and reporting with respect to such awards pursuant to Section 9.3. To the extent necessary to provide the withholding amount in cash to the entity responsible for payroll taxes, withholding, and reporting, the issuer of the applicable award will provide the withholding amount in cash. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the method of remittance of the exercise price of any stock option or any applicable withholding taxes may vary for legal or administrative reasons.
9.6    Dividends/Dividend Equivalents. With respect to dividends on Manitowoc Foodservice Restricted Shares or dividend equivalents on Manitowoc Foodservice Time-Based RSUs payable by Manitowoc Foodservice to Manitowoc ParentCo Group employees or service providers (including former Manitowoc Parent Group employees or service providers who did not become Manitowoc Foodservice Group employees or service providers), Manitowoc Foodservice will make such payments to Manitowoc ParentCo, and Manitowoc ParentCo, as an agent for Manitowoc Foodservice, will make such payments to such Manitowoc ParentCo employee or service provider and will be responsible for any applicable payroll taxes, withholding and reporting in accordance with Section 9.3(a). With respect to dividends on Cranes Restricted Shares or dividend equivalents on Cranes Time-Based RSUs payable by Manitowoc ParentCo to Manitowoc Foodservice Group employees or service providers (including former Manitowoc Foodservice

30




Group employees or service providers), Manitowoc ParentCo will make such payments to Manitowoc Foodservice, and Manitowoc Foodservice, as an agent for Manitowoc ParentCo, will make such payments to such Manitowoc Foodservice Group employees or service providers and will be responsible for payroll taxes, withholding and reporting in accordance with Section 9.3(a).
9.7    Equity Award Administration. Manitowoc Foodservice and Manitowoc ParentCo agree that Charles Schwab will be the administrator and recordkeeper for the Manitowoc Foodservice and Cranes Equity Compensation Awards outstanding as of the Distribution for the life of the relevant awards, unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.
9.8    Registration. Manitowoc ParentCo will register the Manitowoc Foodservice Common Stock relating to the Manitowoc Foodservice Equity Compensation Awards and make any necessary filings with the appropriate Governmental Authorities as required under U.S. and foreign securities laws.
9.9    Short-Term Incentive Plan. The transfer of employment of any Manitowoc ParentCo Group Employee to the Manitowoc Foodservice Group shall not be considered a termination of employment for purposes of any then-completed performance period under the Manitowoc ParentCo Short-Term Incentive Plan, and Manitowoc ParentCo will be responsible for paying any amounts to which such transferred employees become entitled under such Short-Term Incentive Plan.
ARTICLE 10
OTHER EMPLOYMENT MATTERS

Each party agrees to provide the other, to the extent permitted by applicable law, with prompt notice of and information about any effort by any union to organize any of its employees at any facility or property shared by Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates with Manitowoc ParentCo.

For purposes of this Section 10.3, the term “expatriate” will refer to any employee who was hired in one country by Manitowoc ParentCo or one of its Affiliates, designated as an expatriate, and sent to work in another country on a temporary basis.

31




10.4    Shared Employee Contracts.
(a)    At the written request of Manitowoc Foodservice, Manitowoc ParentCo will, and will cause other members of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group to, to the extent permitted by the applicable Manitowoc ParentCo Shared Employee Contract and applicable law, make available to Manitowoc Foodservice or applicable members of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group the benefits and rights under the Manitowoc ParentCo Shared Employee Contracts, including, but not limited to, the investigation, prosecution, and/or defense of litigation to enforce a Manitowoc ParentCo Shared Employee Contract on behalf of Manitowoc Foodservice, which are substantially comparable to the benefits and rights enjoyed by the Manitowoc ParentCo Group under each Manitowoc ParentCo Shared Employee Contract for which such request is made by Manitowoc Foodservice to the extent such benefits and rights relate to the Transferred Businesses; provided that the applicable members of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will assume and discharge (or promptly reimburse Manitowoc ParentCo for) the obligations and liabilities under the relevant Manitowoc ParentCo Shared Employee Contracts associated with the benefits and rights so made available to them.

10.5    Restrictions on Hiring of Current and Former Employees After Distribution Date.
(a)    For a period of twelve (12) months after the Distribution Date, to the extent permitted by applicable law, Manitowoc ParentCo and its Affiliates will not solicit for hire or hire employees of Manitowoc Foodservice or any of its Affiliates, and Manitowoc Foodservice and its Affiliates will not solicit for hire or hire employees of Manitowoc ParentCo or any of its Affiliates, unless written approval for such hiring is given by the senior Human Resources officers of Manitowoc ParentCo and of Manitowoc Foodservice prior to any offer of employment being extended either verbally or in writing; provided that such prohibition shall not apply in the case of employment transfers that the parties agree were made in error. Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice will be responsible

32




for implementing appropriate internal procedures to ensure compliance with this Section 10.5(a).
(b)    Nothing in Section 10.5(a) will prevent Manitowoc ParentCo and its Affiliates from hiring a former employee of Manitowoc Foodservice or one of its Affiliates, or Manitowoc Foodservice and its Affiliates from hiring a former employee of Manitowoc ParentCo or one of its Affiliates (the entity engaging in such hiring will be referred to as the “Hiring Entity” and the entity for whom the employee formerly worked will be referred to as the “Former Employer”), provided that the former employee was either involuntarily terminated by the Former Employer or voluntarily terminated his or her employment prior to being contacted by or applying for employment with the Hiring Entity.
(c)    Notwithstanding anything else in Sections 10.5(a) or (b) and to the extent permitted by applicable law, for the period beginning on the Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Date and ending on the first anniversary of the Distribution Date, none of Manitowoc ParentCo, Manitowoc Foodservice or their Affiliates will solicit for employment or employ (or engage as an independent contractor or consultant) any employee who refuses a transfer of employment contemplated by Sections 2.1(a) or 8.1(a).
(d)    The provisions of this Section 10.5 of this Agreement are severable. In the event that any provision of this Section 10.5 is deemed unenforceable, a court of competent jurisdiction shall reform such provision to the extent necessary to cause it to be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. The parties agree that they desire the court to reform such provision, and therefore agree that the court will have jurisdiction to do so and that they will abide by what the court determines.

11.7    Reimbursement and Indemnification.
(a)    Damages incurred by Manitowoc Foodservice, Manitowoc ParentCo, and/or their applicable Affiliates or their respective Employee Benefit Plans or plan fiduciaries relating to employment, compensation, employee benefit, and benefit plan fiduciary damages and liabilities will be paid to the maximum extent available under applicable insurance. In no respect shall Manitowoc Foodservice, Manitowoc ParentCo, or their Affiliates or their respective Employee Benefit Plans or plan fiduciaries be deemed to indemnify, assume, or agree to share insured losses. To the extent that any such damages are not fully indemnified or reimbursed by applicable insurance, then Manitowoc Foodservice and Manitowoc ParentCo (or the applicable Affiliates of Manitowoc Foodservice and Manitowoc ParentCo) will be responsible for payment of such amounts (including amounts within retentions, deductibles, co-insurance, retrospective premiums and amounts in excess of insurance or not covered by insurance), whether by reimbursement, indemnification or otherwise, in the proportion to and according to whether such damages relate to Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Liabilities, Manitowoc Foodservice Contractor Liabilities, Manitowoc ParentCo Employment Liabilities, Manitowoc ParentCo Contractor Liabilities, Prior Corporate Function Liabilities, Manitowoc ParentCo Benefit Liabilities, or Manitowoc Foodservice Benefit Liabilities, as set forth in this Article 11. For purpose of clarification, if pursuant to the provisions in this Article 11 Manitowoc ParentCo, to the exclusion of the Manitowoc Foodservice Group, will or will cause its applicable Affiliates to assume, be responsible for, and pay, perform, satisfy and discharge any liability, then Manitowoc ParentCo or its applicable Affiliate will be deemed the “Indemnifying Party” and the Manitowoc Foodservice Group will be deemed the “Indemnified Party” for purposes of Section 6.2 of the Separation Agreement in the event the Manitowoc Foodservice Group incurs any damages related to such liability. Similarly, if pursuant to the provisions in this Article 11 Manitowoc Foodservice, to the exclusion of the Manitowoc ParentCo Group, will or will cause their Affiliates to assume, be responsible for, and pay, perform, satisfy and discharge any liability, then Manitowoc Foodservice or its applicable Affiliate will be deemed the “Indemnifying Party” and the Manitowoc ParentCo Group will be deemed the “Indemnified Party” for purposes of Section 6.1 of the Separation Agreement in the event the Manitowoc ParentCo Group incurs any damages related to such liability.
(b)    Claims for breach of this Agreement or for indemnification or reimbursement or with respect to insurance under this Agreement shall be resolved as set forth in, and shall be subject to the terms of, Article VI of the Separation Agreement. This shall in no way limit the applicability of other provisions of the Separation Agreement.
(c)    For the avoidance of doubt, it is understood and agreed that (i) Manitowoc Foodservice Employment Liabilities and Manitowoc Foodservice Contractor Liabilities will arise in connection with Manitowoc Foodservice Exclusive Litigation Matters or Shared Litigation Matters, as defined in the Separation Agreement, (ii) Manitowoc ParentCo Employment Liabilities and Manitowoc ParentCo Contractor Liabilities will arise in connection Manitowoc ParentCo Exclusive Litigation Matters or Shared Litigation Matters, as defined in the Separation Agreement, (iii) Prior Corporate Function Liabilities will arise

37




in connection with Shared Litigation Matters, as defined in the Separation Agreement, except as provided in Schedule 1 therein, (iv) Manitowoc Foodservice Benefit Liabilities will arise in connection with Manitowoc Foodservice Exclusive Litigation Matters or Corporate Litigation Matters, as defined in the Separation Agreement, and (v) Manitowoc ParentCo Benefit Liabilities will arise in connection with Manitowoc ParentCo Exclusive Litigation Matters or Corporate Litigation Matters, as defined in the Separation Agreement.
ARTICLE 12
TERMINATION
12.1    Termination of Agreement. This Agreement will terminate automatically and without need for further action by either party in the event that the Separation Agreement is terminated in accordance with its respective terms.
12.2    Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Article 12, this Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement automatically end without any liability against any party or its Affiliates, except as otherwise provided in the Separation Agreement.
ARTICLE 13MISCELLANEOUS
13.1    Entire Agreement. This Agreement is an integral part of, is subject to, and is to be interpreted consistently with, the Separation Agreement, and the provisions of the Separation Agreement that do not conflict with the provisions of this Agreement are hereby incorporated by reference; in all other respects this Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior written and oral (and all contemporaneous oral) agreements and understandings with respect to the express subject matter hereof. The provisions of Article 7 of the Separation Agreement not otherwise expressly covered in this Article 13 are hereby incorporated by reference into this Agreement. For purposes of this Section 13.1 only, references herein to this Agreement will include the Schedules and Exhibits to this Agreement, the employee matters section of any country’s ancillary agreement, and any annex of the Transition Services Agreement addressing Employee Matters.
13.2    Cooperation. Manitowoc ParentCo and Manitowoc Foodservice agree to, and to cause their Affiliates to, cooperate and use reasonable efforts to promptly (i) comply with all requirements of this Agreement, ERISA, the Code and other laws and regulations which may be applicable to the matters addressed herein, and (ii) subject to applicable law, provide each other with such information reasonably requested by the other party to assist the other party in administering its Employee Benefit Plans and complying with applicable law and regulations and the terms of this Agreement.
13.3    Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement will not confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any Transferred Employee or any other person or entity. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed as giving to any Transferred Employee or other person any legal or equitable right against Manitowoc ParentCo, Manitowoc Foodservice or their Affiliates. This Agreement will not constitute a contract of employment and will not give any Transferred Employee a right to be retained

38




in the employ of either Manitowoc ParentCo, Manitowoc Foodservice or any of their Affiliates, unless the Transferred Employee would otherwise have that right under applicable law. With regard to any Transferred Employee who was an employee-at-will prior to becoming a Transferred Employee, this Agreement will not be deemed to change that at-will status in any way. Furthermore, no provision in this Agreement modifies or amends or creates any employee benefit plan, program, or document (“Intended Benefit Plan”) unless this Agreement explicitly states that the provision “amends” or “creates” (or words to similar effect) that Intended Benefit Plan. This shall not prevent the parties to this Agreement from enforcing any provision in this Agreement, but no other party shall be entitled to enforce any provision in this Agreement on the grounds that it is an amendment to, or a creation of, an Intended Benefit Plan, unless the provision explicitly states that such enforcement rights are being conferred. If a party not entitled to enforce this Agreement brings a lawsuit or other action to enforce any provision in this Agreement as an amendment to, or creation of, an Intended Benefit Plan, and that provision is construed to be such an amendment or creation despite not being explicitly designated as one in this Agreement, that provision shall lapse retroactively, thereby precluding it from having any effect.
13.4    Employment Records. The parties agree that on or within a reasonable time period after the Distribution Date, the party transferring employees (the “Transferor”) agrees to provide the party receiving the employees (the “Transferee”) with all employment records for the employees required to be kept under applicable law or necessary for the conduct of the Transferee’s business, provided (a) that such records will not include any records to the extent such a transfer would violate applicable law or cause the Transferor to breach any agreement with a third party, and (b) that such records are in the possession of the Transferor. The Transferor may make, at its expense, and keep copies of such records.
13.5    Not a Change in Control. The Parties acknowledge and agree that the transactions contemplated by the Separation Agreement and this Agreement do not constitute a “change in control” or a “change of control” for purposes of any benefit plan maintained by the Parties or their Affiliates.
13.6    Effect if Distribution Does Not Occur. If the Distribution does not occur, then all actions and events that are to be taken under this Agreement, or otherwise in connection with the Distribution, shall not be taken or occur, except to the extent specifically provided by Manitowoc ParentCo.
13.7    Disputes. The Parties agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve in an amicable manner any and all controversies, disputes and claims between them arising out of or related in any way to this Agreement. The Parties agree that any controversy, dispute or claim (whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of or related in any way to this Agreement that cannot be amicably resolved informally will be resolved pursuant to the dispute resolution procedures set forth in Article VII of the Separation Agreement.
